This same thing happened in my 32 in vizio and vizio paid an HDTV tech to come out to my house to fix it. He says he ALWAYS gets calls on vizios and this same thing is always the problem. He said Vizio paid more money for the screws on the tv then they did the power board in the tv. You want to either have someone fix it or buy a new power board and fix it yourself. It took the tech 15 min from start to finish to fix my tv and he had drove 2 hours to get here.

Vizio vw37l hdtv20a standby light on but wont turn on


you either have a faulty power supply or faulty main board. Vizio power supplies on the older sets are pretty decent. It's usually the main boards that go. These older main boards tend to be pricey so it may be better to buy a new set.

LG 50 inch plasma wont power on?


U can chk the fuses in the back but it is poss u have shorted it out and it will need to go in to a TV service company. Mine was about us $ 150 to fix. I touched the satelite wire against the back grill of the tv briefly but this was enough. Dont forget to chk that u r getting power off the power switch it is plugged into. Also if it is plugged into something else chk that this is providing power out as it has fuses too. cheers.

My 52 inch vizio flat screen just shut off. The power plug is plugged in and the outlet has power but it wont turn on. Is there a fuse or something that needs to be replaced?


Not usually as simple as that!

Try this first leave unplugged for 24 hours then replug and turn on. This is the standard reset.

However it often spells the beginning of trouble beginning.
The fail safe circuit detects overheating on certain components and will shut down to prevent fire, so now never leave it on standby and go shopping or to bed without turning it off.

The power board and the sustain boards have been compromised and some components are in the process of failing or have failed. It is not a DIY due to HTelecvtrocution and radiation risks. Circuit diagrams, special tools and knowledge are required to correctly fix this and re tune it. Unlike PC's board swapping does not rectify the total problem.

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Once you turn the vizio 50 plazma vphdtv10a off it wont turn back on after it cools of if you keep turning on and off for 30 min it will come on and stay on until you shut it off and let it cool off


I have a 32inch vizio that kept going off. the company said remove it completly from all power,wait 30 seconds,push the on button for 15 seconds.plug back in and it should work.
Mine worked at first then it quit completly and the company did not return any of my e-mails. probably cause it is past the warrenty(they only warrent for 12 months)A friend of mine had the same problem, neither one of us will ever buy a vizio again and I tell everyone I know about this problem.
